With summertime just around the corner, you’re likely daydreaming of beach hangs, brunch dates, and endless sunny days spent with loved ones. We know we are. But, because we’re huge beauty buffs, we’ve also been spending our time test-driving products to get us feeling our very best this summer — and naturally, we’re here to share a few of our must-have finds. (The best part? These gems come in handy all year round.)

The Down-There Grooming Device

Summer is the reigning champ of low-key, worry-free vibes — unless, of course, you’re stressing over swimsuit-ready wax appointments. Enter the Finishing Touch Flawless Bikini Trimmer: a pain-free, easy-to-use hair removal device that allows you to groom as often as you like without any downtime needed. Its convenient angled trimmer head glides over every curve and crevice, and it features an LED light to illuminate those hard-to-see spots. The results? No nicks, cuts, irritation, ingrowns, or razor bumps. Just smooth sailing ahead.

The Summer Hair Saver

Come summer, we find ourselves relying on double-duty products — like Batiste’s Overnight Deep Cleanse Dry Shampoo — more and more. This lightweight formula is made with key ingredients like rice starch, charcoal, and baking soda, which help remove impurities that build up from the day. Just shake the can, spray into the roots, massage thoroughly, and wake up to refreshed, clean-looking hair. Oh, and did we mention it features a soothing and relaxing fragrance mix of jasmine and rose? An added bonus, if you ask us.

The Effortless Volume Achiever

Kiss flimsy baby hairs and sparse spots goodbye. We’re obsessed with using Toppik’s Hair Building Fibers to achieve the look of naturally thicker strands. Made from natural, statically charged keratin protein, these undetectable fibres work by binding to your existing hair and deliver instant volume. No matter what the weather has in store — wind, rain, or sweat-inducing temperatures — the fibres stay put until you wash them out with your shampoo. There’s nine diverse shades to choose from, all of which seamlessly blend into your own unique colour.

The Mess-Free Fuzz Remover

Fun fact: Removing the peach fuzz on your face can actually lead to brighter, smoother-looking skin. That, and it makes makeup go on seamlessly. For any form of facial hair removal (hey, there’s no shame in the game), we love Nair’s Prep & Smooth Face Hair Removal Cream. The brand’s newest answer to bladeless, at-home hair removal, this gentle cream provides long-lasting, smooth skin in two simple steps. Glide the touch-free applicator anywhere facial fuzz exists — like the upper lip, chin, and cheeks — then nix the unwanted hair and gently exfoliate in a single swipe. The dermatologist-tested formula is also infused with hydrating coconut milk and collagen to soothe even the most sensitive skin.
